Should I Take Pregnancy Vitamins?


Eating a healthy, balanced diet should be sufficient to provide you and your baby with all the nutrients you need. If you follow a restricted diet, including vegetarian or vegan, you may wish to speak with your GP or midwife to determine what pregnancy vitamins to include in your diet.


The most important prenatal supplement to take while pregnant is folic acid, but you may wish to also research the benefits of omega 3 supplements, microbiome supplements, vitamin D supplements, calcium supplements, and vitamin C supplements too.

When to Begin Taking Pregnancy Vitamins


It’s recommended to start taking prenatal supplements as soon as you know you’re pregnant. You may wish to begin taking some pregnancy vitamins when trying to conceive too.


It is best to speak with your GP or midwife to get the best advice tailored to your specific health needs.

Omega-3 Pregnancy Vitamins


Omega-3 fatty acids are a family of essential fatty acids that play pivotal roles in your body and promote your overall health. Among the fatty acids family, there are two most important members – DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosatetraenoic acid).


These fatty acids not only contribute to the development of your unborn baby and promoting the normal development of brain and vision, but also support your wellbeing during pregnancy and breastfeeding.


Our Oceans MOM Prenatal DHA Omega-3 Softgels are specially designed for pregnant and breastfeeding mums. These easy-to-chew softgels come in a delicious strawberry flavour and deliver 350mg of DHA, 365mg of omega-3s, and 15mg of EPA per serving.



Alternatively, our Dr Formulated Prenatal DHA Softgels can also provide the support you and your baby need during pregnancy. These omega-3 supplements contain added vitamin D3 and deliver 500mg of DHA, which contributes to the normal brain development of the foetus.



Organics Pregnancy Multivitamins


If you’re looking for vegan pregnancy vitamins, look no further than our range of Organics prenatal supplements. Made from a blend of organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs, as well as added folate, these pregnancy vitamins have been designed to support expecting mums.


Folate contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy, meaning that low levels of this crucial nutrient may cause potential defects in the developing foetus.


Available as tablets or tasty berry gummy vitamins, boost your vitamin levels while pregnant with these nutritional pregnancy multivitamins:
